  1. Bizarre Issues with Fonts and Rendering; Creative Cloud

    Subject: Bizarre Issues with Fonts and Rendering; Creative Cloud

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6
    Suitcase Fusion 19.0.4 (6333)

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
    3.2 Ghz Intel Core i5
    24GB DDR3

    I’m not sure when this started - possibly when the recent update for Creative Cloud occurred. One day I was unable to take a screenshot without it looking distorted and something strange happened with my screen in the top navigation bar - again all distorted. I had to restart.

    Recently I couldn’t sign into Creative Cloud as it was greyed out. Had to restart.

  2. Illustrator cc 2018 does not work correctly with the Nvidia GF 610m graphics card.

    The program closes with an error when selecting the brush tool. Is there any solution to this problem? I know about switching to an integrated graphics card, but its performance is very small. I noticed the same thing when working with nvidia in illustrator, the tooltip does not show any hints, just the new dialog for creating a new document does not appear (only the advanced one works or the old one works, I do not know how it is called correctly).

  3. path view

    Version: Illustrator CC 2018 22.0 (Standard)
    Illustrator does not show a path view. When I select Path View, the object is no longer selectable and no path view is displayed.
    It's the same with every file, both simple and brand new.
    It didn't work in the previous version either.
    In older versions it worked without any problems.

  5. 3D Extrude + Bevel = FAIL

    3D extruded rendering is an absolute fail on Adobe CC 22.0.1

    It's 2017 (nearly 2018) and still, Adobe can't get Illustrator to render text in 3D without undesirable results / unwanted artifacts... c'mon guys!

    Let's "FUSE" the engine to make 3D type in illustrator more powerful and display more accurately without errors.

    Thanks!

  7. DrawArt Suite issue on OS 10.13 and CC 2018

    I'm using the AIDrawArtSuite to render objects in my plug-in.

    This function works fine on windows and os x for CC, CC 2014, CC 2015, CC 2017 and CC 2018 except for macOS 10.13

    On my macbook pro 2014 with a nvidia card and OS 10.13.2, the result is not correct.
    If I'm disabling the GPU performance, the result is now correct.

  8. pen tool curved strokes

    Not sure if this is a bug, a setting, a or a feature. But the stroke will not fill properly. This atrocity only occurs when attempting to make a curved line. Please help.

  10. iMac 5k 2017 w/ Radeon Pro 580 - Illustrator very slow on GPU preview

    Illustrator version 22.01
    macOS 10.12.6
    iMac 5k 2017 w/ i5 3,8Ghz - 16Gb RAM - 2TB Fusion - Radeon Pro 580
    All the file (also a very little file) is slow on movement, on move object and run with shot and NOT fluid. Slow on select object or shape or everything on file.
    The same file opened on a "slow and old" MacMini with the same configuration and the same macOS is not slow and the movement is very fluid.
    Switching to CPU cause the same things, everything is very slow. Also switching to Print Preview is slow.

    Thanks for…

  11. Flickering cursor & preview bugs in bitmap

    Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 (22.0.1)
    Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

    The cursor constantly flickers about a month ago when I was still using AI CC 2017 version. After I updated the CC to the latest version yesterday, the problem still occurred.

    Besides, when I import a bitmap/ tiff file to AI, the whole image cannot be viewed. Some parts are hidden. It has the same issue when i export the AI file to jpg.

  12. Visual Bug

    Updated to latest release of Illustrator, opened a PDF to encounter the bug shown in attached screenshot.

    Windows 10
    NVidia 980

    Hasn't appeared in any other file.

    Bug is related to text that appears missing at bottom of PDF (three lines worth is blank), and disappears when I zoom into 300%.

  13. Pixelated/low Anti Aliasing problem with curved paths

    Not really a GPU bug since it also happens with GPU turned off. But as you can see on the attachment, whenever I draw a curved path in Illustrator it turns out very pixelated/low Anti Aliasing.

    I recently upgraded to CC 2018, and I've been having issues with pathfinder as well as how paths are being displayed. Attached is a shot of what's occurring...this phenomenon not only happens in new edits since udpdating, but is showing up in files that did not display this way previously.

    Most likely cause would be graphics driver on your machine. Please upgrade graphics drivers to see it resolves the issue. If it still does not. Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html .

  19. Hide text highlighting on "Hide Edges" (CMD+H)

    This was never fixed in CC 2015 - 2017 and the same **** bug is in CC2018.

    In ALL previous versions of AI prior to CC2015 (or at least as far back as CS5 when I got Illy), if you selected text with the Text Tool which made the text highlighted, if you then performed the Hide Edges command, the highlight would NOT show... that way you could change the color, Tracking, font size etc of ONLY the SELECTED characters without affecting the others.

    The "big deal" here is when you are trying to see the color change take effect…

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this bug Illustrator Team really appreciate this.
    We are able to reproduce this issue in house and we are investigating it .

  20. Zoom to Selection Doesn't Work within Text

    When I zoom in on Illustrator CC (21.1.0) it works great, zooming in on the object I have selected. The problem occurs when I have a bit of text within a larger textbox selected. When I zoom in, instead of centering around the object, it zooms in on the center of my screen, often putting the selected type out of sight.

    (If I have the textbox itself selected, it's fine. It's just if I'm using the type tool to select and edit type.)
